It’s been more than a fortnight ever since the trailer of the much-awaited movie ‘Uri: the Surgical Strike’ has released on YouTube. With almost 21 million views and counting, it has become a rage throughout the nation, and everybody is praising the actors involved with the project.
The centre of attraction is, without doubt, the man in the lead, i.e. Vicky Kaushal. He is playing the role of a para-commando, Major Vihaan Singh Shergill, who was deputed to lead the surgical strikes conducted against the Pakistani terror launchpads by the Special Para Forces of the Indian Army. The way he has portrayed the role as apparent from the trailer, apart from the savage dialogues in his kitty, we know one thing for sure: Vicky Kaushal rocks as the para-commando in the trailer.
However, not all were pleased by the release of the Uri trailer. While criticism of the movie began from the teaser release way back in September, notorious left liberal mouthpiece The Wire took the demonizing of the surgical strikes to a nauseating level. As soon as the trailer released, The Wire came up with their atrocious criticism, giving it the title, as shown below in the tweet:-

Despite the massive brickbats, the left liberals are in no mood to back out from their vicious agenda. To make matters worse, they’ve now started targeting the actors associated with the project itself. Film critic Anupama Chopra, who runs the left-liberal film review agency ‘Film Companion’, tried to coerce Vicky Kaushal into bashing the film for the patriotism through her subtle attacks, though in vain.
In her latest interview with Vicky Kaushal for the Film Companion, Anupama Chopra attempted to discuss with him the upcoming movie ‘Uri’. Initially, it was informal chitchat, with Vicky thanking Anupama Chopra for helping him overcome his nervousness in facing interviews as he recalled her interview with the Masaan crew at the Cannes film festival.
As soon as the actual interview began, the real Anupama Chopra came out, as she tried to peddle her liberal agenda against ‘Uri’ while interviewing Vicky for the same. To begin with, Anupama started calling out the dialogues of the movie, in her subtle attack on the theme of the movie.
To quote her, “In the trailer, your character has a line that ‘Farz aur Farzi mein Ek Maatra ka Antar Hai’ [There’s a thin line between responsibility and irresponsibility]….When I see people saying that Ye Naya Hindustan Hai, Ye Ghar mein Ghusega Bhi aur Maarega Bhi, it just makes me posse. Does this film cross that line?”
Though this was an interview, the attempt to entice the anti-national attitude from Vicky Kaushal couldn’t be hidden from anyone. An interview with an actor is the last thing to bring out absurd opinions on political issues, as if the actors are some great political experts.
To top it, the attempt to bash anything even remotely related to patriotism by left liberals like Anupama Chopra on movies like ‘Parmanu’, ‘Gold’ is not only atrocious, but nauseating to the least. While the rest of the interview was more about Vicky Kaushal’s personal approaches to such issues, the attempt to bash ‘Uri’ was writ large on the interview.
However, to our delight, and much to the chagrin of Anupama herself, Vicky kept his cool and refused to sway along the direction of Anupama. While he paraphrased her arguments, he also mentioned that such things are justified when seen from the actual perspective. To quote him, “Major Vihaan Shergill would not go to a chowk and say ‘Hum khoon ka badla khoon se lenge’….. When charging the troops, it’s the circumstances that they have to do this, so that they come back next morning. It’s you who’s surviving at their moment, not the next person.”
To top it all, he even referred to the Indian soldiers as superheroes, as he found his role very challenging. Going by the expression on Anupama’s face, we know that even with a generic, poised reply, Vicky Kaushal had hit the ball out of the park.
As ‘Uri’ releases on 11th January, it is not only facing the competition of another movie, ‘The Accidental Prime Minister’, but also the wrath of scores of left liberals, who would do anything in order to prevent ‘Uri’ from becoming a huge success. It’s up to the audience to prove them wrong.
